Introducing Japanese Band Volume 6- "Kobayashi Taro"!

Today’s Volume is a solo artist- Kobayashi Taro

Born in 1990, Hamamatsu city, Providence of Shizuoka.
He was on a TV show “Street Fighters” in 2008 with his band called “Kobayashi Taro & Masakari KatsuiDers”, and got the 1st award of the contest “Street Fighter High School Generation Fes. ’08” of the show

He released his first album “Orkonpood” on Jan 13th, 2010, starting his solo career.
He is very popular in Japan and plays many of the large festivals.  One of his songs from Orkonpod is the theme song for a popular TV drama series.

The sound is strongly influenced by grunge music, and I was impressed by the power of his voice and the songs can touch one’s heart, whether it be hard rock or a slow vocal.

My best from 1st album “Orkonpood” 

It is the “Dragusuta”
Hard rock. 

Here is a slow song- “Misako Chan”.
Used for the TV Drama series. Good song. I love this.

I cannot wait for more albums and hope to see him live one day!
